Trump is once again the victim of someone looking to sell books. Although honestly, he should have seen this one coming. Omarosa Newman, the former bad guy from the Apprentice turned Trump advocate is promoting her tell all book about her brief time with the Trump administration. Of course, this means she needs to sell books. Among her claims are unverified attacks on Trump and his associates, including the claim that she has heard a recording of Trump using the N word. She doesn’t have the recording, but I’m sure we can take her word for it.
Omarosa also may be in trouble. In preparation for her book, she had been recording private meetings which could get her in big trouble for national security violations. Omarosa was fired for unethical behavior, but claims that chief of staff John Kelly threatened her. The threat though sounds more like he was saying he did not intend to make public what she did to get herself fired. That may change now, and she may find herself in legal trouble for the illegal recordings.
However, as of press time, we have a new recording from Omarosa of a phonecall with Trump, where he says he didn’t know she was getting fired and that was a shame.
Speaking of unseen videos, Democrat Representative Keith Ellison’s ex-girlfriend’s son is claiming to have video of Ellison abusing her during their relationship. Like Omarosa’s claims, nothing has been put out there yet and Ellison is denying it. Keith Ellison has also recently denied having a relationship with Louis Farrakhan, although his claims of not knowing Farrakhan were easily debunked. Ellison is currently running for Attorney General in Minnesota.
Speaking of he said, she said and secret recordings, Rudy Guiliani is now saying Trump never told Comey to go easy on Flynn. Guiliani said that was Comey’s version of the events and when he discussed it previously on ABC’s This Week, he was discussing their version of events. It appears though that none of this will matter. Guiliani is very carefully threading a needle with a hostile prosecutor who seems to be looking for perjury or obstruction of justice. But Comey had already testified that Trump’s actions did not constitute obstruction of justice, even if they had discussed Flynn as Comey said. Like Omarosa, Comey released unverified memos of his supposed private conversations with Trump to bump his book sales.
